Change password to text

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how to change a password to text so I can print out the text in a log file?

agould09,

Where does this password originate? Why does it need to be converted to text? Why do you need to store it in a log file? :huh:

I am writing a program that test the settings of the software. It actually runs through the screen and checks all the checks boxes and radio buttons changes textboxes and records pass or fail in a log file. Well one of the screens is the security screen and it has 4 levels of users and passwords and one thing we have to do is change them to test that they are changeable. The program changes them,  but I need a pass or fail in the log file to show it worked. Well when you read the text box it gives me a blank value because it is a coded password. I need to compare the old password to the new password to make sure it changed. Does this make sense?

It makes sense, that i believe mods will not like that, when you're messing with passwords and logging them..can be confused with spyware.

agould09,

It does, but I am very unhappy with the idea of developing code to read things that are not supposed to be read. I am sure you can understand that although I am sure you have no such intentions, others could use such code for less honest purposes. :(

How does the software you are testing save the current/new password? Does it save a hash somewhere? If so then you could perhaps check the stored value to ensure that it had changed. :huh:

But one thing is certain, we will not help with reading invisible passwords - they are made that way for a reason. ;)

Edit:

careca,

Good call. :thumbsup:

UseSystemPasswordChar is what we are using. I understand why you can't post this live to help me because others can get to it. It just sucks because what I need it for isn't what others would use it for. the software I am testing is for a vision system for a meat production line. Basically they can make a patterns and barcodes to make sure the meat is the correct meat with the correct label before it goes out of the production warehouse.

Is there a way to pull a value from the database in autoit?

agould09,

What kind of database is it? There is a SQLite library installed with AutoIt and there are UDFs for other types on the forum, so you might be in luck. I am not a database expert so if you want to go this way, you might be better off starting a new thread with a suitably-worded title to attract them. ;)
